Hilton staff with HHonors status compete upgrades with us

So I found out that Hilton staff have their own Hilton Honours program. They get stay credits even on staff rates and get recognised as Gold or Diamond members too. I donít mind or care if they have this privilege. But I do mind when they can compete with full fare paying guests when getting upgrades.

i was a little peeved when I was staying at a property recently and when I checked in was told that no more suites are available. But a friend I know whoís a Hilton employee had a suite reserved for him tell me that itís also because hotels can not differentiate between members and employees until check in, after the room is assigned.

Donít think Hilton employees should get privileges over guests. What do you think?
